Making Black Art Visible - Andrea Fatona
Increasing the visibility of Black artists and art in Canada

SSHRC-funded researcher Andrea Fatona is the Canada Research Chair in Canadian Black Diasporic Cultural Production at OCAD University. She and her team are building a database of Black artists and their art in Canada, from 1987 forward. The goal is to reverse the erasure of Black artists’ representation in Canada, by increasing awareness of and access to the vast contributions Black artists, curators and critics have made to Canadian culture.

Improving Black health with better data

International data has shown Black patients consistently face poorer health outcomes, mainly as a result of systemic racism and inequity, but little race-based health data has been gathered so far in Canada. Falan Bennett, a master’s SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarship recipient at the University of Toronto, is studying how Black Canadians are being affected by both COVID-19 and maternal illness and death. She hopes that access to more race-based health data will help policy-makers address and improve systemic issues currently leading to worse outcomes for Black patients.
